places to eat like a local. our senior international correspondent ben wedeman's in cairo to sample. >> reporter: i'm ben wedeman's in cairo, egypt. if you're looking for something that's cheap, filling, nutritious and quintessentially egyptian, or so they say, abu tare is the place to go. there's no reason here to ask for a menu, because there's only one item they serve here, and that is really, the working man's lunch here in egypt. kushari. it's a very simple dish with rice, pasta, lentils, tomato sauce, a sort of garlic and vinegar sauce, and as you can see, they do a very brisk business here. now, i said before that kushari isn't quintessentially an egyptian food, i discovered it's not. it actually coming from an indian dish that's composed of rice, lentils, fried onions and chopped vegetables. apparently introduced to egypt by the british army. so what we have here is the basic ingredients of the kushari, and what you do is add a bit of lemon to it. and some extra chickpeas, and what i like the most is the extra fried onions, which really do add to this dish. plus, the tomato

in the book that had an impact on you is seeing the broadway show "ben franklin in paris." why? >> i volunteered to go to vietnam, it was an advisory effort, it was not leading u.s. combat troops. a lot of people told me i was crazy. what are you doing this for? there is no career enhancement for you going over there and advising them and that sort of thing. i told them they don't understand. it is a sense of duty. i'm an instrument of war. i was not articulating my possession well. then i saw "ben franklin in paris" and this wonderful last scene where ben franklin stands up about how will i find those americans then. will they love liberty given it to their crib for nothing. if you are not free you are lost without hope. and are they willing to die for it? that is one question that you have to ask, are you willing to die for it and the answer must be, yes, sir, i would. that is why i was going to vietnam. i have never forgotten those words. >> there's another point where you talk about the civilians in washington seeing too many rambo movies. >> there was an element pressuring, i fe
about different ways to do that, maybe hard of hearing humor. >> take ben stiller, he gets attention for his foundation stiller strong by producing hilarious videos. >> matt damon he claimed water. how did he claim water, aquaman? >> consider this, damon talks about water on youtube, 4,000 hits. this video with sarah silverman. ♪ knock, knock ♪ who's that knocking at my door ♪ >> reporter: viral. damon says his strong suit is getting people to care. >> because there's a lot of low-hanging fruit so to speak. th
cliff. this fall is really going to hurt. ben white of morning money, dennis, said an excuse to get a bic can keeney on the cover. >> relatively slow news day. what geithner did yesterday is almost as if he is strapping a damsel in distress to the tracks and saying the stakes are rising higher. the markets are taking all this tension, all this sort of -- these things at stake to really make the point perhaps that you have to have those stakes really high for people actually to get a deal. >> on "fast" last night when that letter crossed in the green rooms, we were chatting, we said this sounds like a ploy on the part of the treasury to actually get people to start moving. obviously, there wasn't a market selloff, did have the stumbling blocks and traders on friday said almost better if we did see the markets pull back more to crystallize what this could mean for the u.s. economy to members of congress. we didn't see that. it is a numbers game though in terms of what will happen. we know need 60 votes to clear a fill buster in the senate. seven republicans need to go along a lot of j
caught you talking with senator ben nelson of nebraska. here's what he said. >> if we don't have a deal within the next 24 hours, the question is where do you buy a parachute? looks like we'll be going over the cliff. because the closer we get to the end, the less likely it is you're going to be able to compress an agreement into place that will have enough votes to pass. >> compress is probably a nicer word, ram it through is probably what is going to have to happen in order to -- listen, he just said 24 hours, lisa, to reach an agreement. let's say that happens. maybe some kind of deal at the white house today. what would the mechanics of rushing the deal through congress and getting it passed into law in the next few days, give me those mechanics. >> okay. let's break it down so people are really clear on how this could possibly happen. there are some hurdles that congress would have to get passed, some they set up themselves. the first, the house has a 72-hour rule, they have to have bills printed, 72 hours before they vote on them. but the house has gotten around that before. they
'll have. any impact on mortgages? >> no. no impact on mortgages that is an opinion. ben bernanke says look, i will spend $45 billion each and every month buying mortgages so that the interest rate on mortgages stays very, very low. that is entirely separate from fiscal cliff, totally separate from the debt ceiling crisis. i don't think, patti anne, you will have any impact on mortgage rates despite the crisis that is upon us. patti ann: that is good news for us. stuart varney, thank you as always. >> thank you. gregg: the debt ceiling first established in 1917. since then the debt limit has been raised 102 times, congress voted to raise the debt limit, 11 times since 2001. right now the national debt is over 16 trillion dollars and counting every second. there it is. patti ann: meanwhile hopes of a budget deal in washington and higher home prices are combining to send the price of oil back up again. heating oil rising four cents to more than $3 a gallon. wholesale gasoline rising six cents to $2.78 a gallon. current national average is $3.26. national gas up 4 cents to 3.38 for 1000 cubic
heard from senator ben nelson. if we can, let's play that sound bite from a few hours ago. we don't have that sound bite ready at the moment. i'm sorry about that. what senator nelson said was the next 24 hours are the window if something doesn't happen in this next day, then there may be no chance of getting a fiscal cliff deal by january 1st. so that's along the lines of what senator reid is also saying. here we are, critical hours yet again. >> they are running out of days, as you know. we'll get back to you when you get that statement from senator mcdonnell. thanks so much. >> you got it. >>> cnn's chief correspondent ali velshi has a lose closer look at how lawmakers and president obama got themselves in this mess in the first place. >> now we've passed a bold package of tax relief for america's families and businesses. >> it starts more than a decade ago when then president george w. bush initiated a series of tax cuts for all americans but it's a deal with the devil. the cuts, which are politically expedient but costly to government expire in ten year's time. >> both houses of con
